Asustor AS6208T 8-bay NAS Review

Rating: 8.0.

We've already looked at one of Asustor's AS620*T family of NAS units, the 4-bay AS6204T, but now we've got our hands on its much larger sibling, the 8-bay AS6208T. The AS620*T series sits under Asustor's Power User to Business banner with the AS6208T sitting firmly in the latter camp.

The Asustor AS6208T is powered by an Intel Celeron J3160 quad-core processor which has a base frequency of 1.60GHz which climbs to a 2.4GHz burst frequency. Backing this up is 4GB of DDR3L memory which is expandable up to a maximum of 8GB via two SO-DIMM slots.

It has an integrated hardware AES-NI encryption engine as well as an acceleration engine which supports H.264 (AVC), H.265 (HEVC), MPEG-4 Part 2, MPEG-2 and VC-1 formats.

Asustor quote headline performance figures for the AS6208T at 398MB/s for reads and 355MB/s for writes over RAID 5. But as they say, the devil is in the detail. This headline figure is with all four Ethernet ports being used in Link Aggregation mode.

Using two ports linked, the read performance drops to a still very respectable 224MB/s with writes at 220MB/s. Using a single port the performance drops down to 112MB/s read and 111MB/s write speeds, again in RAID 5 mode.


  • Intel Celeron 1.6GHz Quad Core.
  • Integrated AES-NI hardware encryption engine.
  • Hardware acceleration engine.
  • 3-year warranty.
